2008 Dunk Contest Entrants

The NBA announced that there will be four contestants in the 2008 NBA Dunk Contest:

    Rudy Gay, Memphis Grizzlies
    Gerald Green, Boston Celtics
    Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic
    Jamario Moon, Toronto Raptors

According to a recent Sportscenter, Dwight Howard is leading the NBA in terms of total dunks this season. Gerald Green of the Timberwolves is the reigning champion, as he won last year's contest in Vegas against Nate Robinson. This will be the first dunk contest for the Grizzlies' Gay and Raptors' Moon. Jamario Moon would have to be the unknown name to most NBA fans, unless you're in Canada. I'm picking Rudy Gay as the early favorite. A bit biased with the pick but he's had some vicious throwdowns since college and entering the league.

According to Ernie Johnson on TNT's NBA show, fans will be texting in votes to help determine this year's winner. Another first in NBA dunk contest history!
